John McCarthy and Mary Goldthwaite-Gagne explain this summer's Spiral International Program to a parent during 8th Grade Orientation in the gym
"Spiral International" A Special Summer Opportunity At ConVal
This summer, ConVal students are eligible to participate in an exciting opportunity that is new to our school. The Spiral International program is an opportunity to connect American students with students from China. The exchange focuses on conversational English and American culture.
ConVal will be a hosting location for the program during the second half of July. The planned schedule of activities includes field trips and fun activities including hiking, a trip to the seacoast as well as college visits. Each camp involves 25-30 Chinese students and two teachers who will work with two ConVal teachers and 10-20 ConVal High School student ambassadors.
The Chinese students and teachers stay with host families in the community. Priority is given to students who can host, but hosting is not a requirement. Details about this unique program can be found here and here. An application to host students from China is posted here. If you are interested in participating in the Spiral Exchange or have questions, please contact Mrs. Mary Goldthwaite-Gagne.
